You could put it in front of a fan, or put it in the oven with just the light on or if you have a dehydrator use that.

Just put something over the oven controls...a magnet or post-it note or you remember that you've got something in there and don't end up turning on the oven.

... and DON'T be tempted to warm up the oven by preheating it "just a little" to help speed things up! (Ask me how I know?!) icon_redface.gif

I've also put things like this under a desk lamp.

I was astonished by how much heat that little oven light puts out. I was skeptical the first time I read that suggestion, but it really works.

DO put a post-it note or something on the controls so you don't forget and turn on the oven. I just saw that on an episode of Amazing Wedding Cakes when the woman in Chicago forgot and turned on the oven. Even the super-pros makes those mistakes!

My ex-husband made me a dehydrator out of a large square container. He cut a hole large enough for a fan he removed from a computer tower and inserted this into the container *backwards* so that it would remove moisture. I had a ton of baby bootie mints that I needed to dry. It worked like a charm!

I have a "lighted" curio cabinet that I use to store my figures and aid in drying time, it works great.

I am no longer allowed to store things in my oven...........don't ask icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif
